Heaviest European pumpkin comes from Tuscany, second heaviest from Belgium

The heaviest pumpkin in Europe comes from Italian Tuscany. At the European Championship, the Italian heavyweight clocked at 1,217. 5 kilograms. The silver went to the Belgian Mario Vangeel, whose pumpkin put 1,106.5 kilograms in the scale. The organisation of the European Championships in Ludwigsburg, Germany, announced this on Sunday.

The pumpkin of Italian breeder Stefano Cutrupi won the world championship in Italy in September. At that time the giant still weighed 1,226 kilograms: the heaviest pumpkin in the world.
